FRESH FARM PRODUCE
Produce grown at the farm is available to the general public for purchase year-round in our garden and greenhouse. Stop by the urban farm, café or our table at a local farmers market for more information on available produce and pricing.
URBAN FARM GROWING
Fruits and vegetables in the greenhouse are grown using hydroponic techniques to create a year round growing environment. During non-winter months, 4 to 8 foot raised beds are cultivated.
Gardens are placed along the edges of the plot to create an engaging place to gain passer-by interest. Classes for adults and children are conducted on healthy eating and different gardening topics, during the growing season.
